Kev Brown & Daru Jones - A Daru State of Mind (CD)
Across the entirety of A Daru State of Mind, we’re treated to 20 tracks that feature raw, instrumental excursions as well as some background on Daru, Kev, and Eddie. On “Daru State of Mind,” for example, you first hear the mind-bending creativity of Kev as he chops up drums from Daru’s sample pack. And as the music fades, you hear the collaborators show their love for one another’s work and how excited they are to work together.
They bring that same feeling on other instant highlights. There’s the beautifully dusty “Eddie’s Dream,” which showcases his signature mixing techniques that helped bring Premo’s classic boom-bap sound to prominence. Similarly, “Fat Beats Salute” pays homage to both the original NYC Fat Beats and all the records coming out of the shop in the ‘90s. “Being a fan and just walking into the village location in NYC, the energy of the room was crazy,” Daru says. “And you never knew who would pop up.”
There’s just a certain magic to A Daru State of Mind, from the organic nature of the recording itself to the actual music contained within it. And it makes for a truly exciting listen for anyone with even a remote interest in hip-hop production—and just anyone who likes straight-up dope instrumentals.
